JOEL GEHRKE: Crony capitalism: Obama going for gun control with tactic used to pass Obamacare. “President Obama plans to ally himself with big business once again by using crony capitalist tactics to pass gun control just as he used them to pass Obamacare. In this case, Obama reportedly plans to make sure that the new gun control law benefits big businesses that sell weapons.”

Which is funny, because it’s the gun-control fanatics who are always accusing the NRA of being a stooge for the gun industry. As usual, if you turn their accusations around you get a clearer picture.

And why not take a minute today to call your Senators and Congresscritter and let them know how you feel? I recommend calling their local district offices rather than the DC one. And you might give Wal-Mart and other big retailers a call, too, and let them know how you feel about the idea of them cooperating with Obama on gun-control
